, there is a solution to this problem and that would be for people to pay in advance. governments could have an emergency fund instead of spending all their money every year. they could be prepared partly for their emergencies. the federal government could play this because they could set up a fund for disasters and they could set up which would be used to handle disasters so that all this emotion that we just described could not be used to manipulate and take money from people that have earned it. but then they got a lot more than the actual cost of the problem. neil: what worries me is that hurricane sandy was different in a the most severe storm, certainly for the northeast. so how they came up with the $60 billion based a bigger question, whether the governor is handed that figure and adding insult to agony here. they also provided for those in need. >> yes, shortly after the disaster, the figures are going to several decimal points out what they need. nobody really knows exactly what the right amount of it. but we have always advocated for is let's start early and incrementally. instead
sure the government does not shut down. he tried to take that specter off the table. but this is a very tough fight that's getting more and more problematic, larry, because the president said he's going to break the habit of crisis-driven fiscal negotiations. if he's going to succeed in that, somebody is going to have to break and it may have to be soon because treasury secretary geithner said this afternoon we could hit the debt ceiling and exhaust all the extraordinary measures he's been taking as soon as one month from now. >> you know, john, 2010, 2011, the 2012 he negotiated. he voted against the debt ceiling i believe in 2006. why all of a sudden does he not want have to have negotiations? >> i think will's happened, larry, is that the president spent 2011 and 2012 with republicans squeezing him on his priorities, having opposed him during the first two years of his presidency. then that really had the wind at their back. the tea party election of 2010 had given republicans very big numbers on the hill. and he's decided that he backed up, and he backed up and he backed up, and he'
opposite is happening to our government. it is gone crazy with regulation and restriction, but the part that is most alarmming is the amount of money that we are print one day will explode. we can't continue to print money. we have fancy names for it. it is quantitative easing and it is really printing money. wrim bay way has a trillion dollar note and you buy a loaf of bread everybody is happily singing . we will pick up the bill for the health care. new taxes kicked n and they went to the bar and restaurant had a great time and now they will get a check for the so-called health care. >> that is good bread for a trillion dollars. we will ask the congressman worked with bill clinton a democrat and now working with barack obama a democrat. go to my website mikehuckabee.com. tell me what you think on the leaf feed back . sign up for my facebook and follow me on twitter. you can find the link to that and more at mikehuckabee.com. nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this thing. i save money by usin
's it for "the five." >> bret: should a government drowning in a sea of red ink take on more help to victims of the superstorm sandy? that is a battle right now on the floor of the house of representatives. this is "special report." ♪ ♪ good evening. i'm bret baier. right now, behind me, the house is engaged in a battle that serves as a microcosm for epic struggle of the nation's soaring debt. on one side, the president, democrats and some republicans from the region affected who want to spend billions helping storm victims. on the other, other republicans who say much of the money many this latest bill is targeted elsewhere. and that any funds should be offset with cuts. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel has update tonight from capitol hill. good evening,be mike. >> reporter: good evening. with debt and spending expected to be the major fight for much of the year, today it is disaster relief money for the northeast following sandy. that is in the middle of the struggle. >> tragedy like hurricane sandy shouldn't be used as an excuse for a grab bag of spending having nothing
down the cost of health care, even in the private sector as well. >> when is the government -- when is the government ever done that? with george bush's plan, you were critical and had a right to be for prescription drug benefit. the argument ises that it would drive down the cost of those drugs. if anything they have soared since that benefit came in because the government cannot act as a source of even buying in bulk for cutting prices. >> that's exactly right. and in fact i'm also supportive of legislation that would allow medicare, just leak the veterans administration to negotiate with the manufacturers, the drug companies, for lower drug prices. and i guess the point is that there are -- >> it doesn't work. didn't work in the case of drug prescriptions. if you were to expand this to care, what -- >> no, no. >> what is the chance you would get more bang for the buck? >> here's the difference. if medicare were allowed to negotiate with the pharmaceutical companies it would work, and again, that estimate is about over ten years, about $200 billion in lower prices that the federal
, you would be willing to risk not raising debt ceiling, producing a partial government shut down, to make that point? >> absolutely. i would much rather bring on a controlled problem, right now that perhaps could lead to us a solution for the greater problem. if we don't do this, neil,t and and i think you know, we'll have a debt collapse at some point in the future, at a time not of our chosing, en controlled and uncontrol able and we will not be able to fix it. in order to convince this president we need to reduce entitlement spending we have to go over the new cliff, if you will, for partial government shut down, i'll take that because we will prevent a bigger less controllable problem later. neil: will you be willing to take the blame, however unfairly it might be as producing the government shut down it so republicans that we have this financial anarchy? >> i hope what people would recognize, and people would realize, is that we cannot continue with trillion dollar deficits, period. the country will go in to a debt collapse. we will have problem like greece, like spain, like
government spending at the same time. they speak so confident, don't they? it's almost as if they forgot all about the spending cuts the president already gave them over a year ago. well, let's try to help them figure it out a little bit with a little visual and audio assistance. >> over the past two years i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion into new revenue, by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that will save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years. not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made progress. >> didn't president clinton say it was all about arithmetic? republicans can posture on the debt ceiling all they want. they know the truth. listen to john boehner two years ago. >> do you agree with administration officials and other economists that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the
gas complex in the eastern algerian desert gas fields. the house syrian government sent in its military to stop those terrorists tried to transport their hostages from the plant run by bp and the terrorists held dozens of algerian, asian, european, and american hostages. the government at this hour is reporting a special forces have completed their operation to free the hostages held by the terrorist group linked to al qaeda. there has been almost no independent reporting on the ground of what has occurred, the reported number of hostages ranging as high as 41. the number of american hostages as many as seven. the white house and state department confirming only the presence of some american citizens among the hostages, obviously relying principally on the algerian government for most of its information, although the united states has had drones over that plant for much of the time. so at this hour this is what we do know, that the algerian government has concluded its operations against the terrorists that the incident is ending. some north african news outlets have claimed th
of this sovereign state and refuse to submit to illegal use of power by the central government and hereby denounce and forbid this illegal and unwarranted action by the central government. >> that was alabama governor george wallace 50 years ago. here's mississippi governor phil brian yesterday. >> we will not enforce any unconstitutional measure, edict, that's being issued by the president of the united states. we need to send a clear message to the federal government that we're not going to continue what we enforce what we believe to be unconstitutional laws. >> different issue, same words. states' rights. back in the 1950s and '60s, local police often stood by and refused to enforce new civil rights laws. now, some conservative sheriffs say they'll refuse to enforce new gun control laws from washington because they may consider them unconstitutional. today's conservatives aren't opposing the right of our children to go to school. but they are standing in the way of our children going to school safely. that's why president obama is proposing these strong, common sense solutions to gun violence.
enforcement. keeping data on where the guns are. the government stopped keeping those records in 2004 and improving the background check system. so there's more sharing of information. joe, the other path forward would be congressional action and we're told that the president will push for an assault weapons ban and expansion of the gun sales of all kinds. even if i tried to sell you a gun privately, that would require a background check and then limit the sale of high-capacity magazines. those are some of the major issues. we expect to hear the president outline tomorrow, joe. >> jess, is this the kitchen sink or are there things they held back on? >> reporter: well, what the president is describing it as is comprehensive and these are issues that they prioritize. i expect that the white house is is going to place a serious emphasis on this high-capacity magazine issue. i'm told that in private meeting the vice president has emphasized that the high capacity magazine could make as much of a difference, more of a difference, maybe, than any other pressure. he has pointed out to multip
: the problem with that statement is that this government has negotiated with terrorists. our government has been engaged in talks with the taliban and afghanistan since early 2009. the same group that has been a safe haven in the immediate aftermath of september 11th. documents found in the abbottabad compound the lion was killed proving a close working relationship between the two. the same group that is also responsible for a large portion of the 2200 american soldiers killed in afghanistan since 2001. not to mention the palestinian liberation organization the designation changed after we helped negotiate the deal. meanwhile, secretary of state hillary clinton chose her words carefully, while suggesting that the algerian government could use a hand in the battle in that region. >> it is absolutely essential that we broaden and deepen our counter-terrorism cooperation going forward with algeria and all countries of the region. i make clear to the prime minister that we stand ready to further enhance the counter-terrorism support that we already provide. lou: the situation on the ground in
people can win. and you can actually get government to work and get good things to happen. you can overpower the extremists with intelligence and with reason and with common sense. and you can make this state a safer state. >> the national rifle association responded late today to new york's actions. they put out a statement saying naturally that they are outraged by what new york has done. it should also be noted that the nra is frequently outraged. but other states are looking to join new york. maryland governor martin o'malley, colorado governor john hickenlooper, connecticut governor dan malloy, illinois governor jack markell have all announced in the past few days announced ambitious legislative proposals on gun reform in their own states. and of course federally, tomorrow ahead of schedule, president obama is set to unveil his own set of proposals in response to the newtown school shooting. the white house releasing this picture today of vice president biden, presenting his findings to the president and other cabinet members in a gun policy meeting. >> i can tell you that tom
that the government should take any action necessary as quote, as long as it saves even one life. now, the third, when barack obama read from the letters of children, it reminded me of the 1980's, remember the presidential debate, jimmy carter revealed to us, he had talked to his 12-year-old daughter, amy, about nuclear proliferation. now, children, they do have wonderful virtues, but children's ability to understand the intricacies of things like nuclear proliferation, and in this case, the link between guns and violent crime, it's not high among them. this is a play for our emotions and we need to see that as such and lastly during his speech today the issue of gun control shouldn't be a divisive one. wait a minute, for obama to sermonize about the problems of divisiveness, like john edwards sermonizing to us about the problems of, well, infidelity. plain hypocritical. and former fox advisor contributor, karl rove. >> good to be back. >> sean: first of all, i'm watching obama, you're watching obama. different guy in the second term? >> more confrontational, more aggressive, more focused on the polit
quick road map for an economic boom. start off with major cuts in government spending. we should stop paying people not to work. then cut large and small business tax rates to about 25% or less. both large and small business. finally, president obama, please, ease up on all the regulations. i want to talk about this because nobody should be satisfied with 2% growth. let's talk to our friend dean baker from the center for economic and policy research. welcome to both of you. all right, dean, i think 2% is way too low. i think we should be striving for something that's more than twice and that history of america. why can't we get there? >> i agree that's way too low. your policies, they tried that unity, they're back in recession or maybe they're scraping along. that's not going to do it. the story here, two issues. one, we are going to see slower growth because we have lower population growth and that's because people didn't have kids 30 years old. i don't know if you want to blame president obama for that, that's strange, but you can do so. this was a qualitatively different type of r
with the cash. the guard does not go down easily. >> i heard at least 15 to 18 shots. >> tonight, governments in the manhunt for the brinks bandits. i'm bill hemmer in tonight for shepard smith. one of the american hostage in algeria is dead. u.s. officials saying that he was from texas they have recovered his remains and november his family. sources tell fox news he died of a heart attack yesterday when algerian forces stormed the gas plant and tried to rescue the hostage. a bit earlier today the militants claim they were holding two americans at the facility in the sahara. and the state department confirming there were other u.s. hostage there. no word though tonight on their fate. the militants were also offering to swap two americans for two convicted terrorists head here in the u.s. one of them the so-called blind sheikh convict haved of plotting to blow up landmarks here in new york city. investigators say he also has ties to the first world trade center bombing of 1993.

, in march, government spending does run out. they would focus on a longer-term debt ceiling increase sometime in april or may. that is the strategy from house republicans. president obama says he has not even entertained any type of negotiations. republicans should agree to raise the debt ceiling because having to raise it is the result of appropriations already passed and signed into law. back to you. melissa: thanks so much. ashley: here with reaction to the gop when it peter welch. thank you for joining us. you say, look, republicans are making it an "economic weapon of mass distraction." do they get is a continuation of that? >> it is actually progress for the republican confidence, but it is not progress for the country. that tack tick is not one that they can hold onto because they know it will plunge this country into a deeper recession. they have been -- it is a way to say they are avoiding. ashley: it really is not addressing the issue, though, what will it take to get that in place. i know that you, of course, have been leading the charge to have the president to prevent th

now. call the number on your screen now! >> a couple of numbers from the government in the news background today, but they probably will not affect trading one way or the other. point number one, the pro he dueser price index was down .2% in the latest month. year over year, up 1.3%, in other words, no inflation at the producer level. retail sales for december, not bad, not great. up .5. strip out car sales, and you've got a gain of .3%. that's not exactly a gang buster christmas now, is it? nonetheless, those are the numbers and that's what we've got. in my opinion, the next big number that will truly affect trading will be the gdp numbers. and that's when we find out what kind of economy we've got in the fourth quarter of last year. that will point towards how we're going to do in 2013. i suspect that that could move the market. all right. the bell is ringing, and as you know by now, if you're a regular "varney & company" viewer when the bell stops ringing, they start trading and we're expecting, what are we expecting? we're looking for a pretty flat market and i hate to keep
is, these groups operate in areas where there is no central government control. you're talking about countries such as libya that have gone through their revolutions, but in algeria, for instance, this is a huge portion of the sahara desert. you don't have local authority there. you don't have security forces there. these al qaeda militants are able to operate with impunity and make a lot of. with these criminal operations. >> to give the primmer on mali, for those who follow developments there, this has been an extraordinary year for that country. effectively. you'll have to correct me if i'm wrong here, effectively the northern part of mali is completely out of the control of what should be the central government and is effectively in control of al qaeda-associated militan militants? >> right. and why did the french come in now into mali? you might wonder why a country like france would send hundreds and soon thousands of ground troops to that country to try to battle islamist rebels when this is the kind of operation that could end up costing france quite a lot, not just in terms
in their view of the ii amendment. the government is going to come and take away their guns. that is a real palpable fear and that is something that can be addressed by the obama administration. if the president could assure gun owners that they are not going to take away their guns. >> people say it all the time. when the president says that, well, we don't believe that. especially since he has been so demon identifieding demonising for so long. but i still think. i have a number of friends, i have seen them post on facebook. the government will never come and take my guns. the administration will go further to reassure them. for some of them, it may slow down how many weapons they could buy but at the same time they would still have access to firearms for hunting and self defense. the divide between most gun owners and the nra leadership and the more active members of the nra is that something that they believe but only say in the selective environment is they want to have enough fire power to fight police and military forces. >> frank smyth thank you for joining me tonight. some more unm
floyd landis that alleges armstrong defrauded the postal service and the federal government. the postal service paid armstrong more than $30 million. under the law, if fraud against the government is proven, the penalty could be triple, more than $90 million. one interested viewer of the interview last night was david walsh, chief sports writer of the "london sunday times." his newspaper settled a libel lawsuit with armstrong back in 2006 and paid the cyclist nearly half a million dollars. walsh wants that money back. >> the sunday times was the only newspaper that i know that was consistently questioning lance armstrong, that had a position the position was we didn't believe the guy. >> reporter: armstrong's legal opponents will no doubt be tuning into part two of the interview tonight for more insight into the man who, for 13 years, was living a lie. >> was it a big deal to you? did it feel wrong? >> at the time? >> uh-huh. >> no. >> it didn't not even feel wrong? >> no. scary. >> did you feel bad about it? >> no. even scarier. >> reporter: both the department of justice and the u.s.
now have the nra arguing -- >> for larger government. >> for larger federal government, putting armed people like government troops into schools. as opposed to leaving them -- >> the nra came out with a proposal to put guards in schools, everybody from the president's party dumped on them. they went after them hammer and tongs. >> that specifically to the president is not about democrats. >> push back -- >> and the president did not sate. it's just a lie. >> let me just push back on that just to play devil's advocate here. if at elite schools they have private security and armed guards, what is wrong with at public schools having armed guards? >> and why not pay for it? >> right. so if you want -- if you're arguing for that massive expansion of government, what that would require, right, and we're in a budget -- >> it's not massive. >> it is massive. >> we're just hypothetically talking. >> they wouldn't even pay for the couple million that was in a safe school program. they cut that down to zero. and now they're basically saying we want to put armed guards in every school. and to ove

no to enforcing them. these are people saying i'm going to break the law by not enforcing federal government law. in mississippi the governor asked his state house speaker to pass a law declaring unconstitutional gun laws illegal. he also doesn't believe in the ban on high capacity magazines because criminals could still get their hands on them. he said this week, quote, if they want a 30-round clip, they're going to get it in brazil or the soviet union. self-protecting citizens won't have that right, criminals will. soviet union? how about keeping up with the class here. we got to look at this. here is david keene, who i have known for years. he's a hard conservative. here he is on "cbs this morning" talking about background checks. in this area i think people right, left, and center with any kind of rational sense know we have to do something. don't let criminals, don't let people with court-ordered mental situations where they have been ordered not to do things or been under watch to get ahold of guns. let's watch david keene on "cbs this morning." >> we want to see the proposal, but as a gen
. we don't live in isolation. we live in a society. a government of and by and for the people. we are responsible for each other. the right to worship freely and safely, that right was denied to sikhs in oak creek, wisconsin. the right to assemble peacefully, that right was denied shoppers in clackamus, oregon, and moviegoers in aurora, colorado. that most fundamental set of rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, fundamental rights that were denied to college students at virginia tech. and high school students at columbine. and elementary school students in newtown. and kids on street corners in chicago, on too frequent a basis to tolerate. and all the families who've never imagined that they'd lose a loved one to a bullet. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. and when i visited newtown hat month, i spent some private time with many of the families who lost their children that day, and one was the family of grace mcdonnell. grace's parents are here. grace was 7 years old when she was struck down. just a gorgeous, caring, joyful little girl. i'm told she lov
suspicious about social security and government support for the elderly and spending money on medical research and then get this, suspicious about programs a, making sure that kids and poverty are getting enough to eat. this is not only deeply dishonest, it's a gross distortion, a lecture coming from a man who is responsible for a massive increase in poverty during his presidency. now, a third thing we saw from obama's press conference was how deeply misleading his facts and his claims are. for example, obama kept saying his plan would cut 4 trillion dollars in the budget in the next decade, but that claim is utterly untrue. as any number of fact checkers have pointed out the 4 trillion dollar figure comes from number one, it counts 1 trillion in cuts and reached a year ago in the budget negotiations with congress, meaning those savings are already in the bank. number two, it counts 800 billion dollars in savings and debt payments from lower deficits, as a spending cut. that's a dubious claim. number three, obama is counting a nearly 1 trillion dollar savings from more money than nobo
that the government will run out of money. there will be no authorization to spend anything more and the government could functionally shut down. is that involved here at all? >> not in a formal sense. but of course all of this is linked together, what the spending plans are to come up with cuts to avoid the budget sequester which neither party wants because it affects it in is indiscriminate way. and do you have the continuing resolution which would expire a couple of weeks before this deadline. and that is a bill to fund the government the rest of the year. that's comparatively easy because the government spending is on auto pilot. the budget see quester is tougher but still as long as you have only a short term extension of the debt limit, tyler, that issue will hang over the debate. you just won't hang over it the next couple of weeks. >> see you monday more the inauguration. >> you bet. >> now to another breaking news station. this one in algeria. things are still very fluid. the terrorists are still holding hostages 800 miles south of aljeers. they also want the blind sheik. he was tied to th
militants. u.s. government officials tell cnn that may not necessarily, though be the case. let's get straight to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence working this story for us. chris, be what is the very latest that you're hearing? >> wolf, the latest that we're getting from u.s. officials is that some americans may have escaped but some may still be held by those hostage takers and they are still seeing signs perhaps of some intermittent fighting suggesting that perhaps this isn't over yet. as the hostage situation stretched to a second day, u.s. officials scrambled to find a resolution and determine the state of the americans still in militant hands. >> this incident will be resolved, we hope with a minimum loss of life. but when you deal with these relentless terrorists, life is not in any way precious to them. >> americans and other western workers were on as about when multiple militants attacked. the militants took hostage at this gas plant heavily armed with rocket grenades and forced some hostages to wear explosive vests. the militants may have t
